The Science Fiction Writers of America (SFWA), announced the winners of the 2003 Nebula Awards for best science fiction or fantasy this weekend.
Best Novel of 2003
The Speed of Dark by Elizabeth Moon
Best Novella of 2003
“Coraline ” by Neil Gaiman
Best Novelette of 2003
“The Empire of Ice Cream” by Jeffrey Ford
Best Short Story of 2003
“What I Didn’t See” by Karen Joy Fowler
Best Script – The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Stephen Sinclair & Peter Jackson
The Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award was presented to renowned science fiction and fantasy writer Robert Silverberg for lifetime achievement in the field.
A very interesting thing to note is that both “The Empire of Ice Cream” and “What I Didn’t See” were published in the free on-line magazine, SCI FICTION. The times, they are a-changin.
On audio, there’s a very nice version of “Coraline”, read by Neil Gaiman, available from Harper Audio.
And what can be said about Robert Silverberg? A well-deserved award, to be sure. He’s had some stuff produced for audio, but I still consider him largely untapped. Check Blackstone Audio and Fantastic Audio (whose website has not been updated for a long while) for the most recently released titles.
Congratulations to the award winners and the nominees!
